My parents have been divorced for twelve years now, and we've been living in a townhouse for eleven years. Shortly after we moved in (two-three months), I sensed something was different about this house. Something didn't seem to be quite right.
I brushed it off as being nothing, but a few months after I felt it, my mother told us that there was a ghost in the house. He was a tall, well-built man with red hair and beard and sparkling eyes.
When we would be away at my dad's (they have shared custody of us), he would appear to her often when she was in bed. He would lie down beside her when she was flat on her back, try to startle her when she was lying on her side or stand by her bed and look at her. She wasn't bothered by it, was smiling when she told us about it and told us that she only saw him once. She was walking up the stairs and he suddenly appeared, running up in front of her, laughing like he wanted to have a little bit of fun.
I found it a little creepy when she told us but soon came to accept it and I would wonder if he showed up when I would be lying in bed at the other house. She never saw him again but I can still feel something, as though he or another friendly entity is watching over us.
I hope none of you think I am crazy, I would simply like to know if anyone has experienced something similar.
